“Jin Feng: The Peak of All Evil” covers nearly 1000㎡ of 4 ramp exhibition halls with videos, paintings and installation art at Shanghai 21st Century Minsheng Art Museum(M21). In addition, the artist Jin Feng has invited and collaborated with Song Yi, the exhibition curator to “re-depict” the art works in the exhibition halls through a drama. Based on Yi’s understanding of the artist’s working philosophy, he has planned and directed an independent performance echoed with the exhibition theme in one of M21’s large-scale exhibition space, 12 meter high and 600㎡in space.
The show originated from Jin Feng’s past projects “Everest”. It further explores the theme– the Everest, an icon with multi-layer culture indications, is not only a medium transmitting the values of various perspectives but also a real physical existence. However, for the majority of people, the Everest is merely a subject matter with no personal experience. With the coexistence of many complex contradictions, the topics related to the Everest are very open, and yet relevant to the people’s experience for the present era – all these have become the elements in the artist’s works.
